Works selected by Diana Eccles and Joanna Gutteridge were added to the exhibition Forty Years of British Sculpture to form this exhibition. The show was first mounted on the occasion of HM The Queen’s State Visit to Russia in 1994 and comprised 37 sculptures, together with works on paper, from the British Council collection and charted the development of British sculpture since 1939. A catalogue was published, in an English and Russian edition, to accompany the exhibition with an introductory essay by Professor Norbert Lynton, and biographical and bibliographical notes on the artists; ISBN 086355 256 0 and ISBN 086355 257 9. The exhibition toured until 1996.
